Water Conditions

SURFACE TEMPERATURE
LOW HIGH
62ºF 64ºF
VISIBILITY
5-15'

Small short-period surf and moderate tide swings shouldn’t stir it up too much, although the predicted rain Thursday through Saturday will reduce the visibility due to cloud cover. If there is much rain, runoff and bacteria levels might be the determining factor. Boaters should keep an extra eye out for divers near the reefs and channel edges and divers always mark yourselves and area appropriately.

Visibility based on existing conditions and NOAA predicted swell and weather conditions at press time. Check up-to-date daily visibility/ conditions at the San Diego County Lifeguard info line: 619-221-8824.
